PayPal buys Paydiant, aims to challenge Apple, Google & Samsung

Today, PayPal is announcing their acquisition of Paydiant, a startup that produces mobile payment technology found in use with a variety of companies. Capital One and Subway are two notable clients, but one that might be more familiar to tech enthusiasts is CurrentC. Paydiant provides technology to Current C, the product of MCX, which is widely pointed to as the reason Apple Pay hasn’t seen a wider rollout. Terms of PayPal’s deal were not disclosed, but it looks like more than an intellectual property grab.

Apple Watch may be available outside US shortly after launch

Lately, Apple cEO has been making the rounds in Europe, stopping at various stores and chatting with employees. Now and then, we get tidbits of info about his chats.

Apple sued again by firm that just snatched $529 million from them

Apple sued again by firm that just snatched $529 million from them

Just days ago, Apple found itself on the losing end of a lawsuit. The $529 million judgement came to the chagrin of many, but not because Apple had done anything overtly wrong.The ruling was in favor of Smartflash LLC, often described as a patent troll. The lawsuit was in regard to that slippery slope of intellectual property, where Smartflash claims Apple trampled on several patents they hold. With a half-billion dollar ruling under their belt, Smartflash is at it again — with Apple, again.

Apple changes how OS X apps treat memory with move to ARC

Apple changes how OS X apps treat memory with move to ARC

Apple is ready to ask Developers to make improvements to incoming Mac Apps. Through the Apple Developers portal, Apple is asking OS X Developers to change the way their incoming apps treat memory. Rather than ‘Garbage Collection’, Apple is asking Developers to use Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) for memory management. The change applies only to incoming apps, and for apps submitted after May 1. Developers should have seen this coming, though; Apple began favoring ARC over Garbage Collection back in the days on OS X Mountain Lion.

The Apple Watch Edition is not for you

The Apple Watch Edition is not for you

There's a lot of chatter right now on what sort of madness it'll be seeing the prices of the highest-end Apple Watch Edition devices this Spring. But check it out - they aren't being made to sell to the same people that buy iPhone 5c. The 18k gold Apple Watch Edition isn't going to be aimed at a person who doesn't buy the most expensive iPhone. Remember when it was insane to think that Apple would make a gold iPhone? That happened!

Apple’s rumored deal with JDI could bring us everything we’re hoping for

Apple’s rumored deal with JDI could bring us everything we’re hoping for

Apple loves to have a tight supply chain -- one they can control, which will yield the parts they want. They tried in earnest to get Sapphire glass up and running with a partnership with GT Advanced, which ended up a disaster. Now they’re reportedly turning to a much more solid partner for display technology. Though you may not have heard of Japan Display Inc (JDI), you’ve likely seen their work. Though the report is fairly benign, it has a lot of interesting angles (pun intended). The deal will reportedly see Apple dump just shy of $2 billion into a new plant.

Apple faces lawsuit over EV battery expert poaching

Apple faces lawsuit over EV battery expert poaching

Apple's electric car project may only have been grist for the rumor-mill for a week, but it's already landed the firm in legal hot water over alleged expert-poaching. Speculation about the so-called "Project Titan" underway at a secret facility near Apple's Cupertino headquarters has so-far centered on intermingling rumors of EV powertrains and self-driving technology. However, according to battery maker A123 Systems, some of the skills that are helping those projects came as a result of a targeted campaign by Apple to grab the firm's staff. Now, it's decided to take it to the courts.

Trello reports 7 million users as app updates on iOS

Trello reports 7 million users as app updates on iOS

Trello, the app that acts like a whiteboard (or to-do list, your call) has a pretty large user base. Co-founder of Trello, Michael Pryor, now says the app has over seven million users, with an additional 120,000 signing up each week. It might be a rare case of underground success, too, as Pryor also says “eighty percent of sign-ups come from word of mouth”. Not content with simple success, Trello recently updated, which should bring even more users.

Apple Watch orders reportedly top 5 million for first retail push

Apple Watch orders reportedly top 5 million for first retail push

According to the familiar unnamed sourced, Apple has reportedly asked suppliers to provide between 5-6 million Apple Watches for their initial push to retail. The sheer volume of the order suggests Apple is preparing for massive onslaught at retail stores, which will likely bring lines much like we see with iPhone releases. Apple is also keeping themselves grounded, and have reportedly asked for half of those orders to be the entry-level Apple Watch Sport, with much of the rest going toward the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Canalys says about 720,000 Android Wear devices have been shipped. Of those watches, the Moto 360 is ‘the clear leader’ in the clubhouse, with the G Watch R from LG also making an impact versus its squared sister device. Their findings are interesting, but the caveat is ‘shipped’ versus ‘sold’. We know the two don’t directly correlate (we saw that with Samsung tablets). Now I'm starting to wonder if the Apple Watch has already beaten Android Wear, without ever having seen the inside of an Apple Store.
